    Amaechi: I didnt appoint Tonye Cole as APC flagbearer for Rivers 2019 governorship elections

    Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has denied appointing anybody as APC flagbearer for 2019 governorship election in Rivers State.

    The media were awashed with report of Amaechi’s appointment of a Lagos base businessman, Tonye Dele Cole as the APC flagbearer for 2019 governorship election in Rivers State.

    Amaechi in a press statement issued on Saturday by his media office described as misleading, misguided and deliberately disttorted claims linking him to a purported ‘appointment’ of a governorship candidate for the APC in Rivers State for the 2019 gubernatorial election.

    Amaechi in the statement said “as an individual, a registered voter and a card carrying APC member from Rivers State, it’s the Honourable Minister’s inalienable, constitutionally enshrined democratic right to back/support/promote any qualified fellow party member of his choice, to aspire to be the candidate of the party in the State in the forthcoming governorship election or any other election.”

    The Transportation Minister said as a true and thorough democrat , he recognizes that the Party candidates for the 2019 general elections will be elected by party members through the prescribed democratic process in the party’s constitution, rules and regulations.

    “It is therefore preposterous, mischievous; wholly and intentionally disingenuous and deceitful for anyone to claim, allege or even insinuate that the Honourable Minister has “appointed” a governorship candidate for APC in Rivers State,” he stated in the statement.
